Perhaps thats a good sign in that they are working on it on their end to ensure that whatever system they have in place will actually recogonize legitimate CD keys instead of having to pass out new CD keys to those that are affected.

Im also hoping for other peoples sake that they have stopped the printing presses until they work this out so that others dont have to be frustrated by being told that their legitimate purchase of C4 for $40.00 has an invalid CD key. :mad:

Success! Thanks Reed! It worked for me now and am registered.

ALTHOUGH! Im still waiting on the email that I think it's supposed to send me, I've checked my spam box and nothing has come through so far from the server to let me activate the account. So perhaps it's still bottlenecking somewhere on the server and not getting around to sending the emails.

edit: It's now been about 1/2 hour and still no sign of the activation email.

Try the Resend Activation email function, let me know if that works for ya or not. Also be sure to check your profile and confirm your email.

I tried the resend about 15 minutes after registering and still haven't seen any activation email, the email address that it is supposed to send it to is correct as shown in the resend to email address screen where I can resend the activation email.

I am also receiving email on this same account from other people in the last 30 minutes so Im pretty sure it's not a problem with my ISP, but one never knows.

I'll change it to my hotmail account to see if the bottleneck is on my ISP or the servers end just in case.

Update: It came through on my hotmail account (for others with Hotmail, it may come through as Bulk Mail as it did for me) so it must have been delayed on my RoadRunner cable account for some unknown reason. I'll keep an eye out however to see if it ever comes through on the roadrunner account as Im curious if RR blocks something so that others with a RR account can be aware of it.

Can you login to the website or is it through the game that you can't login with your username and password.

Reed, I had no problem registering my game a few days back, but when I tried to enter the CD key into the bonus material page Satruday morning (yesterday) that didn't work. I got a error page saying the code was incorrect. So there definitely is a problem there. I double checked my code before submitting it.

The BM page quite clearly says CD-KEY so unless that is wrong the bonus material page needs looking at.

I just wanted to see if I would have a problem too even though I have the bonus file.

A stupid question, did you check case? I had that problem, (shudder)

I didn't have anything to do w/ that, but that page doesn't take your game CD Key. It takes a "Bonus CD key", which was sent via email to preorders.

Ok, it doesn't say BONUS CD KEY so that is leading to a lot of confustion. I just tried it to see what the problem was. I've already told the people at Sierra about it.
